Ham Sandwich serves up new single 'Out of the Darkness'

In addition to the November 6th single release, the band will be playing across Ireland this month. They also invite fans to participate in their logo competition.

After a lengthy break, the Kells-based band returns with new single 'Out of the Darkness' on November 6 in anticipation of their sophomore album in the Spring of 2010. Following the success of their debut long-player Carry the Meek back in 2008, the band will be playing across Ireland throughout the autumn showcasing the new songs as well as all the fan favourites.

Show dates:

Friday 6 November - The Spirit Store - Dundalk

Saturday 7 November - Whelan's - Dublin

Thursday 19 November - Roisin Dubh - Galway

Ham Sandwich is also calling all talented designers out there to design their new font/logo. The winning fan will receive a hefty sum of cash as well as the band's entire back catalog (signed). The criteria that they are looking for is nothing too specific, just something big, bold and easy to read. They would also like both words to be on separate lines. All efforts should be sent to: podgesandwich@gmail.com. There is no limit to the amount of times you can apply.

Click..Click...Boom!

‘Click..Click..Boom!’ sounds for all the world like it should be a hip-hop track and there is a certain swagger and assurance at work here. Musically, this is a duet that sits on the edge of darkness and a track that places itself firmly in the eye of the storm. Producer Karl Odlum continues to bring out the best in Ham Sandwich (b-side‘Song In D’ is, to be honest, equally good) and there is a sense that they could take this anywhere they please. Best new Irish band? At the moment they’re a shoo in.

Words

I’m not sure what I expected from my first Ham Sandwich experience: probably something a little kooky, a bit amateurish and not particularly riveting. Wrong. This is a record of no little intensity, slow burning from a quietish start into something potent and memorable. There are so many things to recommend it – but let’s just stick with the controlled power that the band exudes and Niamh’s truly wonderful vocal. ‘Words’ deserves to be nothing less than their own ‘Nightrocker’, the kind of track that smashes all preconceptions and establishes Ham Sandwich as serious contenders.

Rock It: Ham Sandwich, Black Daisy and Hipple Street live at the Ambassador, Dublin

You can see the logic behind this mini-festival in The Ambassador, featuring three up-and-coming Irish bands. The small acts pool their respective fanbases to create a bigger audience for all three – thus the gig is given an aura of an event to draw in music-lovers who may not be familiar with any of the performers. In practice, it fell short of the mark.

St Christopher

Having overcome their self-imposed mountain of a name to prove themselves worthy of our attention, ‘St Christopher’ finds the Kells band in a rather serene mood, with mid-tempo monotony highlighting their Sunday feeling. The girl/boy vocal interplay between front people Niamh and Podge isn’t as chilling in its juxtaposition here as Mark Lanegan’s and Isobel Campbell’s – but it’s early days yet.
